"The Uncle John's Jam is just a scrap from the song's Jam in 7s. Apparently the previous night was the song's premier (there are Uncle John's Jams on 11/7 and 11/8) but as far as we know they didn't play the tune again till 12/12. Given this taper's fast pause button finger, he's quite capable of having clipped the transition from Uncle John's Jam into the Main Ten, but unless he ran into serious trouble it's difficult to figure how he lost nearly the whole of Uncle John in a flip (he had a flip coming, probably, after Dire Wolf). The evidence leaves it totally unclear whether they played the tune or just the Jam."
From what is on on Tim's Dat the tape flip came at the end of what we have for UJB, so it doesn't seem likely that Harry would have missed the whole of the song, It's seems more likely that the jam went straight into "The Main Ten"
- There was a lot of use of the pause button which resulted in the start of some tracks being clipped, I have smoothed them out where I could. There are three pauses during the drums section of "TIFTOO"
- I also removed a considerable number of artifacts (pops, clicks, etc)
- Some level adjustments have been made.
- I repaired a few small dropouts but there are some that are too big to do anything about. When I say big they are only a second or so.
Thanks to Joe B. Jones for his help with pitch correction.
Thanks to Harry Ely for being there.
Thanks to Tim Dalton for providing this source and Charlie Miller for the transfer.
There's still a lot that is wrong with this but there's also so much that is right, we are so very lucky to have it.

Subject: a gem
The show is, as we can now say, a nice slice of solid down home late '69 Dead. That's It For the Other One and Dancin' are highlights. The China Cat > Rider features an exceptional jam, maybe unique for the period. And then the fascinating Uncle John > Main Ten jams and that slow bluesy early arrangement of Baby Blue to wrap it. Altamont was the next day -- such a day. Bobby says "Bear says bring dope." Jerry comments "Not only that but it's something to do." And of that there was no shortage.
